Flare Tip Emissivity Tests

Infrared Thermography or IR imaging scanning can observe conditions on power systems, refractory insulation problems, determine build up in process vessels, building envelopes, heat loss in homes. IR scanning is great for developing a PMP on boiler systems and other frequent equipment needing observations. Infrared excels to look at in-floor heating prior to concrete coring or cutting. IR also detects for electrical panels and power supply units such as bearings in motors heat signatures We are located in the Edmonton Area and cover all video inspection work in Western Canada, Alberta and the Oil Sands in Fort McMurray.

This image shows both a contact and installed thermocouple being used to gather temperature data during emissivity tests of new and discolored flare tip material. The heating is not even because of the use of a torch, which was the only available heat source, and this limitation had to be accounted for in the test procedures
